"Roeg's hugely ambitious and imaginative film transforms a straightforward science fiction story into a rich kaleidoscope of contemporary America." Time Out Film Guide
David Bowie is Thomas Jerome Newton in this beautiful 4K restoration of Nicholas Roeg’s classic sci-fi film. Bowie is captivating as Newton, a highly intelligent alien who finds himself trapped on our planet. As earthly vices of sex, money and alcohol take hold, the US Government closes in. Like Bowie himself, this film is a beautiful, iconic space oddity.
